It’s interesting how much the way you were fed growing up influences adult eating choices/habits. There are quite a few foods Fiance had never tried until the last few years…even some common things like a hamburger…as his mUom never served red meat! 

Some of my man’s faves that I make:

Pulled BBQ chicken (he hates pork, too) super easy In the crockpot and freezes well

Tacos (usually lean beef)

Pizza or calzones (homeade or store bought crust) sometimes we do BBQ chicken or buffalo chicken pizza!

Broccoli cheddar soup  or chili both made in the crockpot (just last week he said, man we need to stock up on soup for winter!)

Crabcakes

Grilled cheese and tomato soup

Mac and cheese (from scratch!)

My SO grew up very poor, so he kind of learned to eat what was there. So I guess ‘anything’ would be the best way to describe what he likes.

He’s a in a better place now, but he’s still very hestitant to make choices about food. I’m kind of glad when he tells me he doesn’t like something, because it means he’s starting to have preferences. I try to keep a mental list of what he doesn’t like, and so far a lot of them are things I don’t like either, which is fantastic.

Our favorite recipe for chicken is pretty easy!

Mix a can of whole cranberries, about half a bottle of french salad dressing, and an onion souppacket. Pour over chicken and cook in the oven.

I will usually make this with steamed rice and veggies. For veggies, we usually will have brocoli, cauliflour, or asparagus. Lightly coat whichever you choose with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Throw it in the oven too.
